We believe that latest technology is essential in achieving high standard of care. The practice has invested in latest technology like the femto second laser and Visx S4 with iris registration for LASIK. In fact we are the only practice in Brooklyn and Queens to have these lasers in our office. We have also invested in latest 3D Optovue laser camera for early detection of Glaucoma and management of diabetic eye disease.
